Cabinet of Curiosities Show 86 – Horrible People

“Hell needed horribly bright, self-centered people like Eric.
They were much better at being nasty than demons could ever manage”
— Terry Pratchett (Eric (Discworld, #9; Rincewind #4))

Once upon a time, there was a thread on Twitter that asked….

Who are the worst people in the history of songs?

The act of being horrible – or being on the receiving end of horribleness – has produced an amazing amount of songs over the years.
We’ve picked a few for your delectation and delight –
and we’ve also picked a few classics and ask the question
“are they really as bad as you think they are?”

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 11th September
for a festival of the fetid,
a cavalcade of cads,

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 85 – Requests Special

But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked. `Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: `we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’ `
How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
`You must be,’ said the Cat, `or you wouldn’t have come here.’

Here we go again, another listener takeover!

You have only yourselves to blame………

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 84 – Tales and Legends II

“Because some stories end, but old stories go on,

— Terry Pratchett (The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents (Discworld, #28))

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 83 – Radio Times

There’s something perverse about having a radio show that’s about radio…
…..so of course we were going to do it!

No Spirit, No Gaga
just songs about Radio, songs about DJs, songs about the airwaves…..
it’s all here

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 82 – Pride and Prejudice (and possibly Zombies)


“It’s like people care more about their pride than about what’s correct, about the truth.” 
— Terry Pratchett

“A woman must have a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing, and the modern languages, to deserve the word;
and besides all this, she must possess a certain something in her air and manner of walking,
the tone of her voice, her address and expressions, or the word will be but half-deserved.”

Damn, I was soooooo close on this.
I guess I’m just a heffalump or a woozle!

How about you? Do you measure up?
Too male? Too female? Not Male or Female enough?
Too dark? Too light?
Too straight? Too gay?
Too fond of eating brains? Too alive?
Something else?

No matter what you are, or are not, there is always someone out there ready to dislike you for it.

Be proud of who you are
because who you are is perfect.

If anyone doesn’t agree –
well really, is their opinion important enough to bother about?

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 31st July
and we’ll form a clique and point and laugh at the people who don’t like us!
